Reasons For

5 Reasons For
1,400Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55KU6470 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,500Hz, but the Samsung UE60KU6000 is only a 100Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (1,400Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UE55KU6470 is 55.2mm thick. That's 8.8mm thinner than the Samsung UE60KU6000 (64mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Cheaper by £131
The Samsung UE55KU6470 costs £130.56 less than the Samsung UE60KU6000.
16% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE55KU6470 only costs £179.70 to run but the Samsung UE60KU6000 costs £214.95 to run (20% more). Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE55KU6470 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the Samsung UE60KU6000 has a rating of "A".
3 Reasons For
Marginally larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE60KU6000 has a display diagonal of 60", but the Samsung UE55KU6470 is only a 55" TV (5" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, excluding any frame or border.

One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

29 shops are selling it
A greater number of shops increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock.
Energy efficiency rating is superior
The Samsung UE60KU6000 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", whereas the Samsung UE55KU6470 has a rating of "A".
